I keep seeing this and I am starting to find it both frustrating and hugely entertaining. In politics, it is inevitable that everyone is going to
basically make stuff up, the right do it, the left do it, those who occupy the middle ground do it, nobody is above this, everyone lies a little bit.
However, I think what we are seeing with Trump supporters is reaching a new level, it’s like they have created their own propaganda and are the only
ones who ironically believe it.
The right, the Trump supporters have coined this new medical condition known as “Trump Derangement Syndrome” to describe the mental state of
anyone who does not worship the ground their orange god walks on. I have honestly read some people online who seem to belief that this is a genuine
mental health condition. There are other misconceptions that the right like to push that are just untrue, they have created this silly idea that those
who oppose Trump think “you”; the Trump supporter must be racist because you’re a straight white male who supports Trump. Again, utter nonsense,
it’s just a mechanism for them attempting to occupy the moral high-ground, “look at those leftists trying to call us all racists”. The only
problem with that is that it’s simply not true and the only ones who seem to believe it are the Trump supporters. They do the same with Clinton,
they seem to have bought into this fallacy that anti-Trump equals pro-Hillary. Again, that is just right-wing propaganda that only the right believes.
Now speaking of Hillary, this is again another area where the right belief their own propaganda, don’t get me wrong I don’t like Clinton. With
that said however, I have recently read some nonsense that the Clintons had killed over 150 aids and where running around abusing kids and raping
everyone they could. Honestly if your belief all of the crap that the right has pumped out about Clinton then she is the anti-Christ. There are plenty
of reasons to hate Hillary Clinton without having to make up all this kind of crap, if anything it only undermines your position on her when you start
to believe the lies that your side made up to turn people against her.
This can be seen time and time again, Trump supporters believe their own propaganda, they seem to be the only ones who belief the BS that they are
shovelling. I keep reading them harp on about how must the economy has been boosted under Trump and unemployment is down. Yet they never seem to
address the fact that this has happened on the back of the Obama administration and in an economy, that is still working under largely Obama era
economic policies. It is a lie to claim that it has been Trump who is responsible for this boost in the economy, again however it’s a lie that only
the Trump supporters seem to belief.
Speaking of Obama, I still see lots of Trump supporters who belief this myth that they created that Obama is not American.
This goes on, and on, it can be seen in just about every thread, the right seems to believe their own propaganda. Nobody else does, the rest of us see
it for what it is; lies and propaganda. Like I said this can be massively entertaining, yet it can also be really frustrating. They seem to be
believing their own propaganda because it validates their political views, even if it is built on lies.
